to to see where is the economy going. what got me excited about mark zuckerberg coming out, not only is he interested in high tech visas, he believes we should create path to citizenship for the 11 million undocumented in this country. the reason that's important, he recognizes that short of pathway to citizenship, what happens is we have 11 million residents living in our borders creating two classes of citizens in this country and that's not good for anybody. the fact that they're flexing their muscle, recognize their customer base, recognize the majority of americans, regardless republican or democrat or independent -- >> the naturalization ceremony and debate as we think of new immigrants come to the country becoming citizens of the united states, you look at the path to citizenship, there are several speed bumps that have gotten in the way. what we thought after the election was going to be at least from the outside looking in an easy piece of legislation moving forward, what's really in the way or is this just window dressing and they're going to get it done right after the break? >>
